Tensions in the Gulf could reach a breaking point as a senior Iranian official said Iran would “definitely” close the Strait of Hormuz if an EU oil embargo disrupted the export of crude oil.

First of all.The oil that happens to be under Iranian soil actually BELONGS to the West.It was discovered and exploited by Western technologies.Second, the West is willing to pay a fair price to remove the oil from Iran.But, the Iranians need to realise, this money is to be spent on improving their country and their peoples.Thir d, under no circumstances can they be allowed to fool themselves into thinking they're going to be allowed to obtain weapons with which to intmidate the world into their dictates.Fou rth, yes, they're just that dumb, they actually do think they have a shot at getting away with this- and that's exactly why they need to learn lesson #1.First of all......

A few weeks ago a New York court finalized the verdict of the 10-year litigation against Iran, al-qaida and the Taliban. Iran was found guilty of being part of the assassination of 3,000 world citizens. Iran, did you really think you could get away with it? Now you are going to get it but good!
Nobody is closing the "strait to Hell". And the world will just go through that one.

The leadership of the Iran never has to sell his oil to the country of the India in this life or next life.
I [Nay Lin Maung] have been cheated from the people of the India for $ 478.
The government of the India has to pay some prices for what the people of India screws things with me.
Attacking to the India is main things to focus.
God will punish to the people of the India who cheate me [Nay Lin Maung] for $ 478.
In the future, the people of the India will be putting in to the pictures.
PRICELESS! Oh no wait, it's $478.

If I ran tries to close the Strait of Hormuz, the US will annihilate her.Allah will not save you from our bombs and missiles! Iran will be bombed off the face of the earth. You want a fight, bring it!
This is the same kind of idiotic, trash that was spewed toward the insurgency in Iraq. It's one thing to shoot your mouth on an internet message board, but there are people out there in harm's way. Either go join them or shut up. And don't bother telling me you are a Navy Seal or some such garbage about you "paying for my freedom". Just grow up!

Iran back tracking, making empty threats again. They said if america passed back through the straight with any ships they would destroy them. Did they carry it out ? No. Instead they made up an silly excuse as to why not. They threatened to close off the straight if sanctions got to tough, these have been announced. Have they reacted ? No. Just replied with another empty threat that theyr now going to wait to see the effect when they come in. Their threats are empty, but do gain them important time.
THIS! Same blather...different day.
Yeah, too bad Iran doesn't have any right whatsoever to close the strait....oops, sorry Iran
The jew/nwo hammer of the whole world will soon be broken.
After all the bad grammar in the entire story, the writer decides to end it with "However, the EU strategy of averting "chaos in the Middle East" by tightening the economic noose around Iran could spark the very conflagration it was ostensibly trying to avert." Your sudden use of intellectual verbage does not fool me...
Well, Iran can definitely TRY to close it...
Dear RT:What is the record number of comments for a story? Since this is comment number 475, can you give a link to anything else that has, perhaps, more than 500 comments in it?
its time to drob the bomb again and get rid of all of them in that country, just do it and ask forgivness later from the outher countries. They will be very glad to get rid of that country also.
Dinnerjacket will close it after a ship passes and before the next one arrives. Then, he'll scream death to America/Israel.
